Okay recording, but a very, very nice Friend of the Devil was played on this particular evening. Great guitar work that would carry over into the first portion of El Paso.

Franklin's opener and Dancin' were certainly the highlights.
Keith looked like Jerry looked in '83 already.

Subject: My 2nd Dead show
This was my 2nd Dead show. My first was back in November '77 in Rochester and became Dick's Picks Vol. 34. I vaguely recall a wild ride from Geneva (where I was attending Hobart College at the time)to Syracuse for the show. A bunch of my friends and I ended up at one of those greasy spoons pre-concert. It was right out of that skit that was popular on SNL at the time - remember "Coke, no Pepsi?" Anyway, hearing the boys cover the Warren Zevon classic for the first time (Werewolves of London) was worth the price of admission. I recall some of the band members wearing masks (or was I just dose-ing!)

This is a crummy audience and only for those that went and are nostalgic - The show sounds great but this is tough to listen to at first but trust me it grows on you. Dancin crushes it and there is a great space>NFA. Picks up steam as it cruises along and I can see why folks liked this so much.

Very nice show! Beautiful Candyman & Looks Like Rain. Donna sounds great, very toned down. Enjoy!

Just an all around solid time! I remember when they did Werewolves, out came the masks! Nice Franklins! Where's the Boards?????

Subject: At long last!!
This was one of the very first tapes I owned. I haven't downloaded this yet that's why I gave 4 stars and not five. Its been forever since I've heard it. Ship of Fools, Dancin', NFA, Warewolves were all KICKIN! from what I remember. I had a multiple gen. AUD that didn't sound great-I hope this is a little better.
God bless you people at!
